The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) Oregon presents: 3BY10 – A chance to see what creative professionals and design students in Portland are up to, ten minutes at a time. Doors at 6pm, and it’s all wrapped up by 7pm.
This month’s speaker: Elena Moon
For September 29, the 3BY10 will move to the LeftBank Project, a beautiful, eco-conscious historic renovation on Portland’s east side that’s home to a vibrant community of creative and tech start-up companies, including Sockeye Creative, Uncommon/MNML, and fMYi. LeftBank has graciously offered to host us and provide seating and projection facilities, and we’re currently working out arrangements with Upright Brewing to provide liquid refreshments as well.
Also new for September, the normal 3-person format is being replaced by a single long-form presentation and discussion with user research and experience design expert Elena Moon. Elena has been conducting and acting on design research for over a decade, for clients such as Sony, Nau, Chase, Janus Mutual Funds, Microsoft, and Getty Images. This Wednesday she’ll be describing her experiences conducting effective user research under extremely tight budget and time constraints, in conjunction with Carl Alviani, who will supply the client’s perspective on one such project.
Come by and get connected with Portland’s creative community!
